Am I Falling or Flying?

So here I am, on the edge, willing to jump into a new adventure – one that I’ve wanted for many years.  Ok, I’m ready to do it.  I’m jittery, yet determined.  Ok, I know I can do this.

Perhaps I need to think this through a while longer.  Maybe I’ll do it tomorrow.  My family will think I’m crazy.  Maybe I should just hold off. This will never work.

No—-Now is MY time.  I don’t care if I’m afraid.  I know that deep down, this is what I Really want for my life.  This is a big reason why I came.  Now is my time.  I KNOW it…………Ok, here I go…………

I did it!  Here I am in the air!  Open my eyes and look at the ground below.  It’s getting closer and closer.  What did I do?  I’m falling!  I’m going to crash!

Wait……….Just breathe.  Just breathe and open my body, my arms, my heart………..I’m not falling (who knew that I always had these wings to fly – I just needed to trust them – trust Me!)  Look at me – I’m FLYING!

Feel it!  Feel the winds of the Universe hold me and carry me!  Feel the wings that are Me.  Feel the freedom of the jump!  Feel the freedom of the flight!

Feel THIS moment of flying!

Fly – Enjoy the ride!

Soon I will be soaring!


“When you take your leap, you are not falling, you are flying!” JK

Today’s “Leaping” exercise:  Find a quiet space and get comfortable.  Breathe deeply and allow yourself to slow down your mind and your body.  The intention of this exercise is to get in touch with a “flying” moment in your life.  Recall an experience when you really Came to the Edge and “leaped”.  What did you do?  What did it feel like?  Did you allow yourself to soar and be carried?  If so, what did it feel like?  Did you feel your wings?  How did it feel when You did it? 

Now is a wonderful  time to acknowledge your leap.  Feel it.  Fly again with it!  Acknowledge that you did it!  Soar!
